    I like the military gentleman’s comment that four years ago this march would not have been possible, referring to the ability to do a peaceful march at all.

    It must make the military swell with pride to see progress like that and to know they were such a vital part of it.

    I’m afraid they will have to capture or kill Al-Sadr before they can see their mission through, however. What a dangerous man. No wonder he is on the run.

    “Chanting “get out, get out occupiers” Well if you people can go one day without blowing eachother up, i’m sure we’d be long gone by now! Oh wait, i forgot… iraqis are killing eachother and destroying their country one day at a time but it’s AMERICA’S fault! We’re losing good soldiers everyday trying to help rebuild that hell but WE’RE the ones that are the bad guys. I need to go drink a beer.”

    I feel your frustration too. Maybe not beer for me but………………..

    This is a change of hearts and minds and will simply take time. That is why their new democracy has to be given a chance to flourish. It starts with that.

    I think I would call it being optimistic which is what good leaders do.

    This is just one of several “missions” in Iraq. The one you refer too has long since been accomplished.

    I agree. That is why a democratic government is so critical in Iraq.

    The people in Iraq yearn for freedom. Do you think Saddam gave it to them? They have tasted freedom and will not go back to tyranny. That is why Al-Sadr will ultimately be defeated as well.

    Following in the footsteps of this freedom is their newf ound government. Allowed to flourish, it will ultimately defeat the radicals. We just have to have patience.

    The Iraqis are tasting freedom now and with the help of our military, they will

    “Terrorist live off, let me rephrase, they feed off the violence and hatred that is rampant in Iraq – NOW THANKS TO US.”

    Yeah that was a real violent march today in Iraq, wasn’t it?

    Have falth, people.
